Dangers of Part Worn Tyres
Many people are still unfortunately purchasing part worn tyres and this is resulting in many motorists driving with dangerous & unsafe tyres.... it’s the only part of the car touching the road and keeping you safe!!
Part worn tyres are part worn because they are another motorist’s scrap tyre! People looking to save a few pounds on the running costs of their car are putting themselves at risk by buying part-worn tyres and most do not even meet the minimum legal requirements. A study has revealed that 90% of part worn tyres are ‘dangerous’ and should never be on UK roads. Many part worn tyres have been 'repaired' in an unsafe manner, or have underlying damage, so if it looks ok on the outside there may still be problems underneath and in the sidewalls.
Part worn tyres work out expensive per mm of tread, and even more expensive if they cause loss of vehicle control!
